Retreat Workshops

ART FOR ALL - CREATIVITY - RELAXATION

Annual Workshops at Long Bay, Auckland, with NZ Down Syndrome Association.

Painting workshops for young adults with Down syndrome and a session for their parents:

3 hours of peaceful, playful, art time. No external pressure; a time to recapture the pleasure of moving paint around a surface; an opportunity to refresh your vision - to explore colours and textures - to experiment with new techniques that are simple but effective.

 

Take home your completed canvas as a positive reminder of this very special self-care session.
